Abstract

Coronary artery bypass graft surgery in patients with, immune thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) refractory to preoperative medical therapy accompanies an increased risk of bleeding perioperatively. In the ITP patient without responding to intravenous immunoglobulin and corticosteroids, we performed combined off-pump coronary artery bypass grafting with splenectomy to minimize the risk of intraoperative bleeding and cardiac ischemia. Using platelets infusion, we successfully managed the patient without major bleeding and ischemic events.
